International RuleML Symposium on Rule Interchange and Applications Launched

Posted by: Adrian.Paschke

RuleML-2007 is a new international meeting place for users, system providers, practitioners, developers, researchers and representatives of rule/event standardization efforts and open source rule communities to discuss the applicability and commercialization of rule technologies for enterprises and public organizations including event-handling rules.
Co-located with the 10th International Business Rules Forum (, the International Symposium on Rule Interchange and Applications (RuleML-2007) is the first symposium devoted to work on practical distributed rule/event technologies and rule/event-based applications which need language standards for rules operating in the context of, e.g., the Semantic Web, Intelligent Multi-Agent Systems, Event-Driven Architectures and Service-Oriented Computing.

Participants will be offered an exciting venue to exchange new ideas, practical developments and their experience on issues related to the engineering, management, integration, interoperation and interchange of rules and events in enterprise application systems and open distributed environments such as the Web. RuleML-2007 will also enable delegates to better understand rules and event processing technologies and their potential, and how to exploit these technologies in their organizations.

The symposium will be held in Orlando, Florida, US, October 25/26, 2007 and will feature scientific research, industry, and demo papers and presentations, case study and practical experience presentations, show cases/demos presented in a RuleML-2007 Challenge and Invited Talks.

Symposium general chair Said Tabet, Inferware Corp., said “I am very pleased to announce the launch of this symposium. After a series of successful RuleML workshops and conferences, this is a new kind of event where the Web Logic community joins the established, practically oriented Forum of the Business Rules community to help cross-fertilizing between Web and Business Logic technology. Given the increasing maturity of rules and complex event processing technology, the RuleML symposium is an exciting venue to exchange new ideas, practical developments and your experience on issues related to the engineering, deployment, management, integration, interoperation and interchange of rules, and to discuss the commercial benefits that rules and event processing technology will deliver.”

Business Rules Market Adoption: Survey Results

Posted by: Admin

If you are near Hartford Conneticut, USA on May 10, you can check out the COOUG meeting on Business Rules Market Adoption: Survery Results.

Meeting details:

Summary of findings:

  1. Many Fortune 500 companies are piloting applications using a BR approach, some without the use of a business rule engine
  2. Vendors need to catch-up to the demand for products assisting with BR approaches (tools, training, and consulting)
  3. Understand your business culture, and your expected ROI, as well as the maturity of the BR tools and support available before you proceed
  4. BR development priorities appear to be in areas where:

    • decision consistency is critical
    • business change (application volatility) is above average
    • transaction volume is high (i.e. loan eligibility, insurance underwriting)
    • Solution quality and time-to-market business drivers alone can justify a BR approach, in addition to any potential technology cost savings.
